Hutchison's Paediatrics

by Krishna M Goel, Devendra K Gupta

The art and understanding of health problems of children have undergone rapid advances with a dual challenge of delivery of primary or essential health care at their doorsteps, to the most intensive care in a tertiary care setting with various grades of care in-between. The scope of paediatrics has now become broader, encompassing the vital period of adolescence. Above all, paediatrics is now being recognized as a separate independent discipline in undergraduate medical curriculum in most countries. Hutchison’s Paediatrics has been created by taking excerpts as rennet from “Children’s Medicine and Surgery” edited by Cockburn, Carachi, Goel and Young, which have been amplified with outstanding contributions of core contents by eminent international paediatric experts under the authoritative patronage of legendary Hutchison. Editors Krishna M Goel and Devendra K Gupta deserve our accolades for creating a comprehensive Textbook of Paediatrics covering practically all the medical and surgical conditions of children from birth through adolescence. The contributors have provided state-of-the-art information and their own personal experiences pertaining to the fields of their expertise. Each chapter has laid emphasis on anatomical and physiological background, etiopathogenesis, clinical spectrum, diagnosis and management in a lucid manner. The text is amply supported by illustrations, line diagrams, charts, tables and photographs. The format, composing and quality of production are commendable. Hutchison’s Paediatrics would fulfill the felt needs of graduate and postgraduate students in paediatrics and paediatric surgery as well as pediatricians and family physicians because of cultural, ethnic, social, economic and ecological similarities.
